Retiring the Crow Rate by Arthur Kroeger
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"The Holy Crow"...How do you change one of Canada's most politically sensitive policies? Retiring the Crow Rate is an exacting study in the process of changing an entrenched public policy that many in the West saw as their birthright. It is also a rewarding work of memoir and a tribute to Jean-Luc Pepin's prowess as an engaging politician. Arthur Kroeger's deft narration of the events which led to the end of the "The Crow" in the early 1980s also reveals his character as an exemplary public servant. Political scientists and students, western historians, politically engaged Canadians, and those who fondly remember Arthur Kroeger as Canada's 'dean of deputy ministers' will want Retiring the Crow Rate on their bookshelves.
